1. Moments of Change

    A community film & viral project for Cheltenham Health & Wellbeing Partnership

    Moments of Change is an innovative new approach to community project engagement funded by the Cheltenham Health & Wellbeing Strategic Partnership, supported by NHS Gloucestershire, Cheltenham Borough Council and People & Places CIC.

    The Gardeners (gardenersmedia.com) were awarded a grant to make a set of films to promote, within the community at large, positive stories about emotional wellbeing and to use multimedia as a way to engage the community in discussion on the topic of mental health and wellbeing, so as to bring about positive social change and reduce stigma & inequality.

    The series of web-based viral films present real stories of people suffering with mental health issues.

    CALL TO ACTION >>> We encourage communities and organisations to organise their own screenings to watch the films and open up discussion to the issues involved in living with mental illness.

    To screen the films in FULL RES please contact miranda@gardenersmedia.com
